Hat’s off to all involved in organising and participating in a wonderful fundraiser held at Longley Park Golf Club in Huddersfield.
Around 90 people attended a Wild West evening to raise money for 7 of our BOK team swimmers and 2 coaches to attend the Special Olympics National Games. The games will be held in Bath in August.
Entertainment was by way of a wonderful live band – Clayton West and the Hot Dogs – brilliantly fronted by Russ Elias. Revellers enjoyed line dances, a supper fit for a cowboy and a raffle. The evening rounded off with a disco.
The night raised a fantastic total of £611. This was a real team effort with each family making their own special contribution towards the evening by either baking, cooking, decorating the room or just turning up to participate in the fun and support ALL of our talented swimmers.
The swim team will be representing Yorkshire & Humberside at the Special Olympic National Games. Thanks to money raised last night along with proceeds from further fundraising events and very generous donations from local businesses the team are well on their way to having the funds needed for the trip.
We will keep you posted here at HDSSG of all the news from our Olympic team!!
